mug of the favourite hot beverage alone or with a special friend can seem like an
oasis of sanity in the midst of a hectic day. Hot or cold, with some favourite
fruit or nut flavours added, can make for a very special time. Both coffee & tea
come with caffeine as optional. If you find that caffeine disturbs your sleep or
raises your blood pressure, you can opt for the caffeine free version. If,
caffeine is not a problem then go for it! Since both coffee & tea contain
caffeine naturally, they must undergo a process to remove it. The decaffeination
process whether for beans or leaves, takes some of the flavour out of it, so plan
to purchase a better grade of coffee when you want the caffeine out.There is
some humor when people link caffeine products with relaxation and comfort, while
at the same time, look upon alcohol as a party drink. When in reality, alcohol
is a depressant. You can always spice up your coffee & tea with some flavouring.
Just check out your local supermarkets. There are a huge variety of flavourings
for your coffee & tea. A scented pot of coffee is the norm at breakfast time.
The aroma is as exhilarating as the coffee itself. Tea makes a nice break in the
afternoon, accompanied by a light sandwich.Coffee & tea are sometimes split up
by gender as well as time of day. Coffee is the man's drink, served with a
newspaper while a flowered porcelain pot of tea is the picture of milady's
genteel tastes. In reality, men all over the world prefer strong mugs of tea and
there's no shortage of women who gather for a ladies afternoon with coffee.Hot
or cold, man or woman, flavoured or plain, caffeinated or not, coffee & tea are
possibly the best part of the day.
